We took off to Big Bear for the weekend. My sister and her husband invited us to join them. We’re so glad they did! It was fun and relaxing.
Hubby had researched online about this cute little fishing place where you were guaranteed to catch a fish. It was built for little families like us.
Diva was so excited. She kept telling us that she wanted to, “Catch a fish, smash it and eat it.”
And then we arrive to the Alpine Trout Lakes and it was closed. Permanently. What is a desperate parent supposed to do now?
Well, we bought a one-day fishing license. And bait. And a pink, Disney Princess fishing pole. We settled down on a dock, cast the line and waited.
We caught a big fat NOTHING.
Diva was upset but we finally convinced her that, “The fishies just aren’t hungry today. We have to come back and try again.” (and I’m a little relieved we didn’t have to smash and eat whatever ended up on that line.)
We still had fun though. The weather was gorgeous. The air fresh. The lake serene. The kids well-behaved.
And now we are the proud owners of a pink, Disney princess fishing pole.
